Oh, Zack Morris. You made my pre-teen heart SWOON. He's the original TV boyfriend, you guys. I had a Saved by the Bell board game, and I took out all the playing cards and taped them on my bedroom walls. Next to my JTT and Rider Strong pinups. I'm not sure why I'm admitting this.

I somehow escaped the JTT craze. I remember all of my friends had pictures of him in their lockers in, like, fifth grade.

Yes! Looking back, I don't even get it now. I mean, he was a cute kid, but...maybe I'm biased now because he didn't so much grow up to be a cute adult? :p

Of course, too, now that we're older, we don't see "attractive" so much as "kid" -- which doubtless colors things. (I haven't seen a recent picture of him, I think.)

I'm suddenly remembering having a huge crush on Christian Slater, though.

Hahaha. Well, yes. There's that, too.

I think I missed out on Christian Slater. I never even saw Heathers until I was a lot older. I was definitely one of those Teen Bop/Tiger Beat kids, I'm only slightly ashamed to say. I loved the Lawrence brothers. :p

Hee hee, icon!

I'm trying to think back to shows I watched and I'm remembering Blossom and Full House, but I think I missed the Lawrence brothers thing anyway, haha. Jared Leto, though? My So-Called Life? Pretty, pretty eyes.

Yes! Jared Leto! No one on television since has leaned against things quite as well as Jordan Catalano.

I watched Boy Meets World, so that season where Rider Strong and Matthew Lawrence lived together was awesome. Though, I think that was at the tail end of my teen heartthrob years. :p And I'm having trouble remembering others, too. I know there were more! I was a Tiger Beat fiend! :p

OH OH, Boy Meets World -- Rider Strong was the friend of the main boy, or of the main boy's older brother? I'm totally forgetting names right now, but I remember thinking the older brother was supercute. Who was that??

Rider Strong was the friend, but the older brother was cute, too, yes! His name was Will something. Hang on. Freedle? Friedle? Friedel? Something like that! AND, I remember that he used to date Jennifer Love Hewitt. Why do I remember that??

Umm, she was JENNIFER LOVE FEFFERMAN and was only in the episode that was the "Scream" parody where they all talk about sex and it's hilarious. And then the murdered is obviously Sean (Rider Strong), because he can't deal with Corey and Topanga's break-up. Or there's the episode with Mr. Miyagi and Boris and Natasha and FLASH when Corey goes back in time. Or there's the one with "Adolescent Male Is Introduced to the Universe" and Eric's Shakespearean theater days and the lucky tiny tube socks. Or the one where Sean and Corey turn Mr. Feeny's house into a B&B.

Man. This is the show of my childhood. (I used to have an "Eric calls the voice in his head a different name" icon, but I lost it. Sadly.)

Yessss. I have seen that episode! They're in the library, right? AWESOME. They used to show Boy Meets World on Disney channel all the time, I wonder if they still do? Unlike pretty much all of the rest of those shows I watched as a kid, I still find reruns of BMW funny.

Date: 2007-12-07 02:58 am (UTC)

They DO still show it on the Disney channel, except it's kind of COMPLETELY WEIRD AND RANDOM. It's a block of four shows and it's, like, "Hannah Montana," "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody," "Phil of the Future," and "BOY MEETS WORLD." These are all shows that've premiered in the past three years and then "Boy Meets World," which began 15 YEARS AGO. I find it really weird.

(And in my defense, I only know the names of all these Disney channel shows because I have a little sister and she's obsessed with ALL OF THEM. Equally. It's weird.)

Anyway, yes, they're in the library for a little bit in the episode (I'm pretty sure it ends in the library--I know someone gets offed by a falling stack of books) and it's awesome.

How is 'neither' not an option?

Of course this might be because I didn't start watching Saved By The Bell until it was in re-runs and I was a teenager. All I did was mock it.

Date: 2007-12-06 07:48 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Heh. My friend was trying to tell me that clearly everyone loved Slater more and I begged to differ.

Oh, man, but YouTube is making me so happy now. I definitely did watch the show as a little kid and I loved it, but I'm having a great time mocking all of it right now. With love! Mocking with love! :p

Christ in heaven, for some reason I was all about Andrew Keegan. Excuse me, I need to go throw up.

Date: 2007-12-06 07:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Hahahaha. That is ridiculously hilarious to me. Especially since now the only thing I can remember Andrew Keegan being in is 10 Things I Hate About You. He was total teen heartthrob material, though, in his day. I think? :D

I can't mock. I can't remember who I lusted after, but I'm sure that it was terribly embarrassing since I fawned over Tiger Beat and Seventeen. :)

Yeah... so who liked Slater more? I love how no one has voted for him on your poll yet. Also, I'm sorry, but the show is so embarrassing to watch now. In every single youtube clip you have here, I can't get through the whole thing because I just feel so bad that the clothing and hair styles have been recorded for everyone to mock for all eternity in reruns (and now youtube... double trouble...).

In response to an earlier comment, I'm pretty sure his name was Will Friedle.

From: [identity profile]
Heh. I was chatting with a friend in gmail and she and her co-worker believed Slater was superior. SHE IS CLEARLY WRONG.

And isn't it so bad? It is kind of hard to watch, except for how I still kind of love it and its horrible badness. I think the one where the whole school is dancing in the hallways to Zack's song is my favorite. Who does that?

And thank you on the Friedle. I could just look it up, but...lazy. :p

Hee. Zach Morris, plz. AC Slater's a tool. And I love that "I'M SO EXCITED! I'M SO...SCARED!" has become, like, one of the top pop culture quotes of our generation. STAY AWAY FROM DRUGS, KIDS! You could get hooked in, like, a day!

Man, "Saved By The Bell." It's almost as awesome as "Boy Meets World."

I'M SO EXCITED and the Zack Morris cell phone. Thank you, Saved by the Bell. :)

So NOT a contest. Sorry, Slater.

RIGHT? Did Slater make a special prom for Kelly when she couldn't afford to go? I DON'T THINK SO.

I chose Zach, but if it was for the ladies - Spano all the way.

Oh, Jessie definitely. Can't argue with that.

Oh my GOD. I was just talking to [ profile] regala_electra the other night about this show 'cause I'll be taking a Cult TV & Audiences class in the spring and the professor wants to show us various episodes, including Saved by the Bell ones. AND THEN SHE LINKED ME THE "I'M SO EXCITED" ONE.

oh show. You will always be dear to my heart for all the memories of after school viewings and the true love of Zack and Slater. ~*~Sigh~*~. ;)

omg JTT and Rider Strong! YES YES. Rider was in an episode of Bones recently and I kind of reenacted my teenage squeal. DAMN IT.

Duuuude. I want to take that class! I picked the wrong major. And the wrong college. :p

And Rider Strong was on Bones? Awesome. I do not begrudge you your teenage squeal, 'cause I was way hyperexcited when he guest starred on VM last year. :p

OMG my favorite thing ever in the world is the flash-forward episode where they're a huge pop band and they sing Friends Forever. I knew (know?) all the words. :D

Also HOOOOMG JTT. *FANS SELF* I had a huge poster of him with flippy hair and he was sitting on a tall stool and being all cute and <3 <3 <3 oh, Simba.

(My faaaaavorite back then, though? Totally Jonathan Brandis.)

JONATHAN BRANDIS!! I always forget about him and then I feel guilty about forgetting about him. :p I'm pretty sure he was on my wall, too.

This is random but I was just linked to your journal from a friend I was delighted by this entry.

Umm obviously Zach Morris all the way. I hated Slater!

Zack Morris, FOR SURE. I'm pretty sure he qualifies as my very first TV boyfriend. ;)
